View topic - Using Minna No Nihongo to supplement Genki Book
Could any one advise whether I should get minna no nihongo series or other any other book e.g"Dictionary of basic japanese grammar", " The Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary" etc. Thanks.
[P.S. I have just started self learning Japanese and currently have Genki textbook.]

It's a little late I know, but I didn't see anyone else answer this, and it concerns a common mistake I see. Basically, every course is going to be focused towards some end, which may or may not be your personal focus. But another course doubles your workload, may end up not meeting your needs either, and leads to burnout
However, Genki is pretty good for the JLPT, I'm assuming you have the audio and workbooks as well, and not just the textbook. If you have the full course load, then it should prepare you for the JLPT. And you'd probably want a JLPT workbook anyway, and not just rely on Genki for the test(s). The real question to ask is if you really nead the JLPT, or are you just using it as some sort of waypoint.

If you want to buy books to supplement effectively learning Japanese, I do recommend the Dictionary of (Basic,Intermediate,Advanced) Japanese Grammar.
